Build this Vex eye from Destiny and learn about electronics along the way. Via pinshape Blog:

For this project, we’ll be assembling the Vex Eye by Tanner and introducing basic Arduino and electronics concepts along the way.

To get started, print out the remixed design files for Tanner’s Vex Eye here! This version includes a modified electronics plate to accommodate the Adafruit Gemma and NeoPixel boards. We printed the body in Formlabs Grey Resin, the lenses in Formlabs Clear Resin, and the nubs for the shell in Flexible Resin. Feel free to mix and match with colors as long as a clear material is used for the lenses!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Flora RGB Smart NeoPixel version 2 What’s a wearable project without LEDs? Our favorite part of the Flora platform is these tiny smart pixels. Designed specifically for wearables, these updated Flora NeoPixels have ultra-cool technology: these ultra-bright LEDs have a constant-current driver cooked right into the LED package! The pixels are chainable – so you only need 1 pin/wire to control as many LEDs as you like. They’re easy to sew, and the chainable design means no crossed threads.
